• Nokia has a patent for "vibrating tattoo" technology



    I came across this article today in the The Star which I found very interesting.
    Nokia has a patent that recently went public for a new magnetic tattoo which would vibrate when someone’s calling your phone.


    It's basically a haptic technology and they also state it won't interfere with medical devices or pacemakers.
    Personally, i'm not into Tattoo's. Never have been, never will be. Those of you that are, is this something that you would consider?

    let's discuss!

      No I definitely not consider ever doing this. What a waste of money this patent was. Good job Nokia for patenting useless technology.

      It is bad enough with a lot of people suffering from Phone Vibrate Syndrome that think they feel their phone vibrating in their pocket, can you imagine a whole tattoo vibrating.

      Like a regular tattoo, can you remove it? Also, I'd still be a little paranoid about the side effects.

    Have had that happen before. Overnight shipping is usually on a different truck than ground shipping.
